DAN SWANÖ (EDGE OF SANITY) pubished digitalized UNISOUND-studio guestbook online

Dan Swanö

Swedish musician and producer Dan Swanö (EDGE OF SANITY; NIGHTINGALE) published an early UNISOUND-studio guestbook online; it is from 1997 and features for example entries on Katatonia-, Opeth-, Nightingale- and many more recordings which took place during that time.
Now the guestbook is available for the first time to the public, as it was recently digitalized. Many “liner notes” by Dan on the recording process back then were added.

Dan Swanö’s UNISOUND-studio existed for the most part of the 1990s, was closed for some years and reopened in 2005.

About the guestbook, Dan writes:
“In 1994 I introduced the guestbook at Unisound Recordings. It quickly became a hit with the bands that recorded with me. Some members seemed to take their guestbook pages more seriously than their music!

This was an early form of a homepage. Every band knew that the others would look at their page, and often left messages or insults for the others to read when they returned for another recording.

The first guestbook to be made available to world is from 1996/1997. It is a bit more luxurious than the previous one (That will be unleashed later in 2011).  Most of the pages have Polaroid photos. The film cost a bloody fortune, but looking back, it was so worth it!

So here come the final result, it’s a long interview with Swano that includes all you need to know about Swano’s career which includes numerous releases with Nightingale, Edge Of Sanity, Bloodbath and Total Terror to mention a few.

Evergrey, NightInGale : Helsinki Nosturi 2008

March 29th, 2008





Nosturi Helsinki

The 21st of March 2008

Having a metal gig before the easter break with two Swedish metal names, NightInGale and Evergrey, appeared to be both interesting and temptating because of the line-up. Both bands definitely enjoy a more true fan based following in Finland. Above all, NightInGale definitely draws some expected interest from the progessive genre, but of course Evergrey has the fan-legion of their own.
